    The Heinrichstein is a rugged massif with a viewpoint on the western slope of the Saale valley in the upper part of the Bleilochtalsperre. The height of the lookout point is indicated at 515 meters above sea level [1]; It rises about 100 meters above the water level of the dam. Because it lies on the outside of a hall bow, it offers a good view of a large part of the dam (Wikipedia).

    The Heinrichstein is a rugged massif with a viewpoint on the western slope of the Saale valley in the upper part of the Bleilochtalsperre. The height of the lookout point is indicated at 515 meters above sea level; It rises about 100 meters above the water level of the dam. Since it is on the outside of a hall bow, it offers good visibility on a large part of the dam.The Heinrichstein is located on the corridor of the former community Schönbrunn, which is now part of the city Saalburg-Ebersdorf. Hiking trails to the Heinrichstein lead from Schönbrunn over the "Green Donkey" and from Ebersdorf over the "Pohlighaus", each with a length of about three kilometers.It can be presumed that the Heinrichstein bears his name after the Lords of Reuss, who all had the nickname Heinrich since the 12th century. An older name is Stuhfels, which points to the dam of the river on the impact slope; the neighboring hillside is still called chair.The first written mention as Heinrich stone took place in a handwritten chronicle of Ebersdorf, in the 1740 of "love meal on the Heinrich stone" is the speech that was held by the resident in Ebersdorf brothers and were in addition to religious acts also eaten together and drunk , In 1757 it was drawn for the first time on a map.The beauty of the view from the Heinrichstein, even before the damming of the Bleilochtalsperre, was praised by Ludwig Ganghofer in 1912 in two poems. Julius Sturm also wrote poems about the Heinrichstein, one of which hung in the refuge at the vantage point.The area around the Heinrichstein is a nature reserve.

    Insider tip: when the Saale is frozen over and the sun is shining on it, you can hear the ice "barking" from Heinrichstein. Last seen many years ago. 😟

    There was a fire here last year. 😱 You can see various charred tree trunks. Back then, that was a real problem for the fire brigade in this impassable area ...

    Heinrichstein's little brother. If you want to go here, you should definitely be sure-footed. The view is definitely worth it. The view from Heinrichstein, the big brother, is actually a bit nicer, which of course is a matter of taste. We think it's still very worthwhile.
